The award winning Big Web Show features special guests and topics like web publishing, art direction, content strategy, typography, web technology, and more. It's everything web that matters.
Hosted by Jeffrey Zeldman.
American designer Tash Wong and British designer Tom Harman are the co-founders of Coastermatic and Jeffrey Zeldman's guests in Episode No. 92 of The Big Web Show ("everything web that matters").
Tash and Tom recently resided in Brooklyn, NY and completed their MFAs in Interaction Design at New York's School of Visual Arts; they are now bound for Hawaii, where they will expand their web-based product empire. Coastermatic, their first joint product, converts your Instagram photos into stone coasters, and was conceived during their time at SVA. (More in the August 2, 2012 issue of Dwell.)
The three designers discuss UX, product, and business strategy; finding the right manufacturing and fulfillment partners; the division of labor in a small startup; and other juicy design and entrepreneurial topics.
